Deschutes Brewery Collabs with Dovetail Workwear to Support Women in Beverage Industry
(Portland, OR) – Deschutes Brewery announced today a unique collaboration with Dovetail Workwear, a women’s workwear company based in Portland whose mission is to encourage women to enter and succeed in non-traditional occupations. Inviting women from across industries to participate in every aspect of this project in celebration, Deschutes crafted Move Maker, a Cold India Pale Ale with all proceeds benefitting Pink Boots Society who “assist, inspire and encourage women fermented/alcoholic beverage industry professionals to advance their careers through education.”
“Move Maker is a beer inspired by your favorite denim: a reliable, feel good, go-to beer that’s refreshing after a hard day of work,” said Veronica Vega, Director of Product Development at Deschutes. “This collaboration with our friends at Dovetail, a women owned and operated company, is a salute to all of the talented, hardworking women in non-traditional occupations, like brewing.”
“We are very fortunate to produce clothes for move-making women in trades and other tough jobs,” said Kate Day, Co-founder and Brand Director of Dovetail Workwear. “To be involved with a beer inspired by hardworking women? Cheers to that!”
Move Maker is a Cold IPA, a style that combines the attributes of a light crushable lager with the hop aromas of an IPA. Utilizing the Pink Boots 2020 hop blend, Move Maker has a delicate and crisp drinking experience at 6% ABV with elevated tropical fruit hop aromatics and minimal bitterness at 35 IBUs.
This small batch beer will launch in 4 pack 16-ounce cans and on draft on October 1 at Deschutes Brewery’s owned and operated establishments in Bend and Portland, Oregon, and Roanoke, Virginia.
